CEO’s Updates

World water scarcities… Thinking Africa, or the Middle East, or Asia? How about Texas? Texas is booming its way right into a seven million acre foot per year deficit.

The Perfect Storm for Water

It looks like California is about to get too much water after too little. It's happening across the planet — either too much, or too little. That's why China has committed a third of a trillion dollars to water projects. For starters! Other countries are catching up fast. It's a tsunami for water conservation, treatment and reuse.

We’ve Changed Our Name!

Now that we're successfully clarifying waste water of all kinds, it's no longer just about oil. In fact, that's kind of confusing. So, we adopted a name that says what we do, and why. And, it will help us build a family of companies under one brand. Jim Nelson did a great job with that at Solar3D, which took off after one, and then another acquisition. (We don’t represent that OriginClear will do the same!) Read More

At the top of the Sierras in February, the mountains were green with a dusting of snow at the very top – more like summer than winter. Governor Brown has set mandatory cutbacks, but meanwhile, agriculture uses huge amounts of water and was exhausting groundwater even before the current drought. The alternative is desalination – and that is so expensive it will make reclamation look cheap – we are there to help. Read More
